AS CM INTERVENES TREE CUTTING NEAR TEMPLE STOPS
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Srinagar, Mar 28: Cutting of trees in a temple in Rainawari area in the City has been stopped following Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah's intervention.
Acting on a complaint lodged by a Kashmiri Pandit on his Twitter account, Omar directed the Deputy Commissioner to visit the Vaital Bhairavi temple in Rainawari.
"Tree felling has been stopped. One tree was cut and has been handed over to the trust. Further action will follow," the Chief Minister said in response to the tweet by Lalit Ambardar.
Kashmiri Pandit organisations have been accusing mahants of various temple trusts in the Valley of selling out land and properties of these religious places in connivance with land sharks and some revenue officials.
They have demanded a CBI probe into these incidents.
